An Open Letter To My Brands...

Dear Garmin,
I should totally be a brand ambassador for your fitness watches...

There are several reasons for this but the main one is cause I love them and I spend a considerable amount of time strategically planning for when I can get the latest model. Don't get me wrong, my love for your watches isn't a blind stalker-ish kind of love. It is conditional on performance. But so far you have never disappointed me (although you really need to work on tracking open water swimming on all your multi-sport devices). By-the-way, thanks so much for Garmin Connect. Whoever thought of that should get a raise (you're welcome Steve... I'm just kidding I don't really know anyone named Steve that works for Garmin). Anyway, no pressure about the brand ambassador thing. It's just a really good idea (if I do say so myself) and you seem to be a company that has a lot of really good ideas product & promotion-wise. Anointing me "brand ambassador extraordinaire" would just be an extension of that. But like I said, no pressure.

Sincerely,
Your loyal "runner and expert open water swimmer-to-be" customer
LeAnne

P.S (my contact information is: thisismyfaster@gmail.com, you know, should you need it)

Dear CW-X,
I should totally be a brand ambassador for your compression pants...

Not just because the pants are amazing and they keep my legs from falling to pieces during my runs; but also because I don't even complain when I have to pull them back up after a potty break on a hot and humid day...in a porta potty...in the middle of a race. Those are some challenging situations CW-X and I think you would agree that it takes true love and commitment to squeeze into compression pants under those conditions. But I still wear your products with enthusiasm and I tell all my running friends about you. I even convinced my twin sister to buy a pair (and she never usually listens to me regarding clothing purchases. See??? I'm just that good at promoting your products). I've even run in them after my really bad fall last year. Don't worry it wasn't your fault, that stupid sidewalk crack came out of nowhere. Anyway, that fall ripped a hole in the knee area of the pants (and my skin) but I sewed you up and still wear you with pride...
So, you know, I'm kind of an un-official brand ambassador already. Feel free to make that official though. But like I told Garmin (in the open letter above) no pressure. Ok maybe a little pressure but only to the same degree that your pants provide compression ;)

Sincerely,
Your loyal "Insulator Stabilyx Tights (size: S)" customer

Dear New Balance,
You stole my heart NB (can I call you NB?). I used to be a Brooks only girl (I still love you Brooks but... it's complicated). However, when I became a race ambassador for the ZOOMA Women's race series and got introduced to your NB Pace shoes I fell in love...

It was one of those "sweep you off your feet" kinds of love (but not literally because no one wants to actually fall during a run...been there done that). I'm now on my second pair, the ones I will run the NY marathon in, which means you will be a part of history in the making. Well, just my history but still, I will blog about you so for the 50 people who regularly read my blog that will be an epic promotion of your product. But I don't want you to feel "pressured", just motivated to make me a brand ambassador. Please proceed as you see fit :)

Sincerely,
Your newest "I'm in love with the Pace, size 10 (don't judge my big feet) shoes" customer

Dear All Other Brands,
Maybe we haven't met yet or maybe we just aren't the right "fit" for each other. Do not be discouraged. There are brand ambassadors out there for you. If they read this blog I will encourage them to comment and tell me all about you. Keep your chin up.

Sincerely yours,
"The one that got away"
LeAnne
